Weekend Sewing Marathon - A new tutorial for Riley Blake Designs

Hello Everyone, sorry for the long break from sewing/quilting project updates. I am back with my sojo( sewing mojo).
I have been literally sewing non-stop since Friday night. Here is the outcome:
RBD Splendor Fabric Collection by Lila Tueller

Splendor Garden Quilt - 80/90 x 77 inches
 A free tutorial available on Riley Blake Designs Cutting Corners College website, click here.

Even though I got hardly any sleep over the weekend, it feels refreshing to get sew much sewing done ;). I think I sewed more hours this last week compared to the sewing I did in last 6 months. I hope I am coming out of the non-sewing rut I have been for quite sometime now.

Pieced Kites - My favorites

This is the second largest quilt I ever made, almost a queen 80/90 x 77 inches. I am planning to quilt this on the long arm. But I have never rented longarm for more than 3 hours at a time. This one is looking like 6 to 10 hours of quilting unless I really simplify the quilting. I hate to take the quilt off the frame and reload again for more quilting. Hmmmm.....decisions decisions...decisions!

Linking up to Lee's Freshly Pieced blog and Lorna's Let's Bee Social.



Happy Quilting!
